When I can I like to go yatching. Sadly that doesn't happen nearly often enough.

In my time I've sailed with friends and through high school. So far I've sailed:
For those that don't know, R Classes are awesomely cool and dangerous boats. Something usually breaks or goes wrong and I spend as much time in the water as I do on the boat.

Why would anyone sail one of these? Because they are such thrilling and exciting boats! There's nothing quite like roaring along in a nice strong breaze with both of you out on the trapeze, hanging on for dear life, getting soaked by every wave while a dolphin races alongside you.

An R Class is an "Extreme performance development dinghy class in the truest sense"
